The Last Drop 1971 Blended Scotch
The Last Drop // Scotland
An unusual thing to see a vintage dated blended Scotch whisky, but that is what this release from The Last Drop contains. It was first blended to create a 12 year-old blend; what was left from that bottling was placed into 11 ex-oloroso sherry butts. It remained there for 9 years and was bottled as a 21 year-old whisky. What remained from that bottling was transferred into oak barrels for an additional 24 years of maturation. Forty different malt and grain whiskies comprise the blend and all were distilled in 1971. The whisky was bottled in 2017 and is sold at 47.2% ABV. 1352 bottles are available for sale.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
